Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Can we request my husbands twin boys to be checked on at their mothers house. She agreed for us to have them for the second week of the holidays but has renegged and removed all contact with the boys. One has been diagnosed with absent dad syndrome, he has been counting down the days to visit and is found hitting his head and wanting to kill himself when he is with his mum. Her behaviour has become very erratic and we are worried about the emmotional impact this will have on the boys. They turned 12 last week and there is no formal parenting agreement
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: No
JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?
Customer: New zealand
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The school has reported a change in language from the boys in the bad words they use this year. The neighbours are complaining about the shouting coming from the house. She has said she is not coping and asked us to take one twin to live with us - we have indicated we dont want to break them up and would take two.

You need to sort out a formal parenting agreement and  can do that with places like Fairway. They appoint an independent and trained mediator to help the parents reach an agreement. You can sort out some reporting on the boys to check how they are doing as part of that
